Intel You'd think this sort of stuff belonged to the past - but no. Apparently, Microsoft is afraid of Android on its Windows 8 tablets, because Intel has just announced that it will provide no support for Linux on its clover Trail processors. Supposedly, this chip is "designed for Windows 8". What?

Or is it because x86 is just a battery guzzler, and no matter what it's stupid to be using it in situations where power resources are highly limited?

But, well, lets morph this thing into something it was never designed to be, because oh no, we can't let better architectures like ARM and MIPS do their thing and compete where they technically mop the floor with us. No, no, no--we need to start invading their territory, even if in the end the customers lose with shittier battery life due to the x86/Windows combination.
